Great eventing or showjumping prospect

Rocky (now Coloraddo) is a striking colt, with correct conformation, excellent gaits and a very friendly personality. This colt is a very modern type and has all the attributes to excel in either showjumping or eventing.

Dam Delaney LS is by Distelfink, a Hanoverian stallion by DISKUS out of ST PR ST DOREEN by DUKER. Bred by Hennig Bartels of Braunschweig, Germany, DISTELFINK was licensed as a breeding stallion prior to importing into New Zealand in 1982. DISTELFINK produced Horse of the Year Winners, Young Horse of the Year, Show Hunter of the Year and national champions in dressage and eventing. He was 3rd on the WBCSH/FEI sires list for event horses in 1997/98 season.

Rocky is by Pico Bello, who was imported to New Zealand as a 5 yr old to begin a career in showjumping as well as standing at stud. He was campaigned in sport by Mount View rider Ike Unsworth, very successfully up to Grand Prix level. He was then sold to Australia, continuing his success with many wins and placings in World Cup and Grand Prix classes under David Dobson.

Pico Bellos sire, Calvados is bred from the best of French Performance stock. The sire of Calvados, Uriel produced more than 100 International SJ horses. The dam of Calvados, Gold Rose was a member of the French SJ Team and won many notable Grand Prix. Pico Bellos dam, Zellie is by Joost, the Holsteiner stallion that is one of the founders of Dutch Show Jumping breeding. In combination with Abgar, as seen in Pico Bellos breeding, Joost has produced a large number of International Show Jumping horses.
